Invasive Species Identification and Ecology

Thursday, October 15, 2020 | 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

$40 – $50
Guided Hikes, Adults

Thursday Oct 15 | 3:30pm – 5:30pm,

Thursday Oct 22 | 3:30pm – 5:30pm

In this two-part workshop we’ll discover common, well-established invasive species like buckthorn and garlic mustard, along with some newer, less well-known invasives. We’ll learn how to identify these plants using distinguishing features like leaves, branches and bark, and fruit. Then, we’ll discuss what makes a species invasive, versus non-native or naturalized, and how each species is harmful to the ecosystem. Once we know how to identify the species, we’ll discuss the best management practices and which plants to prioritize. You’ll leave this workshop with the know-how to start eliminating these species on your own property.

This program will take place entirely outdoors. We will practice social distancing when we are able to, but because of the nature of small-group programming, it will not always be possible. For the health and safety of all, participants must wear a mask when you are within six feet of others. Please do not attend if you are sick or believe you have been exposed to the virus.
